    Just finished watching the show. I think I met Jason Madera on a search for Kyron? If it wasn't him, it was someone who looks similar to him. I'm terrible with names.

    A long time ago, I conversed with a local and was also told about the jewelry guy. I have a sneaking hunch all the locals suspect him. I'm surprised he's stayed there all this time. I wonder what life is like for him? I'd love to know more about his past and see if there's any telltale signs.

    Hearing Melissa describe what it's like when your child goes missing as being similar to losing a child in a store. That is exactly what Jennifer Wix's mom told me. I can't even imagine having to live with that feeling every single day of my life. How they manage I don't know.

    If you're reading this and you have a tip, no matter how small, please call today.

    I'm glad that worked! What did you think about jewelry guy lying about his whereabouts?

    I think that is the most frustrating thing about this case - that it stops there.
    When LE say they have nothing more to go on - I think that Hartman and the other resident who was a POI should be held to account for what they have said at the time.
    Hartman's lie was huge - and he was also involved in the search, and was driving Lindsays mother around in his car to search for Lindsay. Big Red Flag, to me about his involvement.
    I'm surprised (like others) that he is still in town and trading - he is in plain sight.
    Its hard to know what to think when the police are at a dead end with taking the investigation further with them both, even when the case is still open.
    Maybe if there was a lie detector test done now, with the advance of new technology, things would be different.

    FBI in Washington Honors National Missing Children’s Day

    The FBI’s Seattle Field Office honors National Missing Children’s Day this May 25, 2017, as an occasion to emphasize the FBI’s commitment to bringing home our missing children; and to encourage the public to make child safety a priority.

    The FBI continues to support local, state, and tribal partners in their searches for missing Washington children, such as Lindsey Baum. In 2009, 10-year-old Lindsey Baum was seen leaving a friend’s house in McCleary, Washington.

    If members of the public have any information regarding Lindsey’s whereabouts or any other missing child, they are asked to please contact their local FBI field office, local police department, or 9-1-1. Tips may also be submitted to the FBI through tips.fbi.gov.

    Eight Years Later, No Answers in Disappearance of Washington Girl

    Lindsey Baum Melissa Baum

    Monday marks eight years of lost memories for Melissa Baum.

    Her daughter Lindsey should soon be celebrating her 19th birthday.

    She should have just finished her first year out of high school, coming home for summer break perhaps.

    But those memories will not happen because Lindsey Baum disappeared when she was 10 years old. Melissa Baum told Dateline. “All these memories never got to happen,” Melissa Baum told Dateline.

    Could brothers in life-long sex abuse investigation be tied to missing children?

    There was no immediate connection between three Seattle brothers who police believed collected child pornography for decades and local missing person cases.

    But at least one law enforcement officer is investigating the possibility. The Gray's Harbor Sheriff told KIRO 7 he's investigating whether the brothers have any connection to the 2009 disappearance of Lindsey Baum in southwest Washington.

    "Their writings express desires to kill children," said Capt. Mike Edwards, who leads SPD's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force. "It's very clear that these three individuals have an obsession with young female children, they've had this obsession for most if not all of their lives, and they acted on it."

    People following the story on social media have mentioned cold cases and years-old missing child cases.

    Among those cases is Lindsey Baum, who disappeared from McCleary while walking back from a friend’s house in 2009. The 10-year-old’s disappearance sparked a nationwide investigation.

    McCleary is a roughly 30-minute drive from Shelton, where the brothers also owned a property. Charles – and his now deceased brother Donald – remained in the Shelton home until 2016.

    Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott confirmed to KIRO 7 News that a flier about Baum was found in the Shelton home, but there is no known connection between the brothers and the disappearance of Baum. Police are investigating.

    “When we heard of the link to the Shelton property, and its proximity to McCleary, and the nature of the paper work they found at the [Seattle home] … We immediately began to see if there’s anything that would link to our investigation,” Scott told KIRO 7 News. “The Lindsey Baum case has been and will be a priority until we find closure or find Lindsey safe. We’ve worked on the case every day in some shape or form.”

    According to Scott, detectives intend to do an extensive search of the Shelton property, but it will take a large team as it sits on 14 to 17 acres of land.

    Investigators look for possible missing children connections to Emery brothers child porn case

    Some of the evidence police collected at the three Emery brothers’ Seattle home has led some to wonder if any local children who have gone missing could be connected to the elderly men.

    Neighbors in the small town of McCleary say old wounds have now been ripped open over the case of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum who disappeared in 2009.

    The top cop at the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office has been working on Lindsey’s case since 2009, and he promised to continue searching until he can tell her mother exactly what happened.

    “It brings back horrible memories and it’s just. It’s just very sad,” said Kristina Greenfield, who lives in McCleary.

    “Lindsey certainly fits their victim profile and it’s something that we’re going to try to look further into and see where it takes us,” said Scott.

    Lindsey’s mother told Q13 News she was too upset for an on-camera interview but posted a statement to her Facebook page that said in part:

    “I am devastated at the thought of these monsters being involved in Lindsey’s abduction. But at this point it’s too soon to know. I pray for answers not only for myself but for other mothers and families going through this nightmare too.”

    My heart is aching so badly, and nothing to be done but endure, which I will do. I know nothing more than what has been reported. I don't know if these demons had anything to do with my Lindsey's abduction. My emotions regarding this entire ordeal are too raw and nauseating to verbalize. As badly as I need to find my baby girl, as badly as I need answers to where she is I pray these sick freaks aren't those answers! However it is obvious this has effected countless victims and their families since long before I was born. I pray that all are able to find peace and closure especially knowing these men will probably not live long enough to go to trial or for justice to prevail. May the world finally take notice of what tolerance in history has done to our children and society! God help us all! - Melissa Baum (Lindsey's mother)

    Hope is all that we have had since the night of June 26, 2009 and it has come and gone many times over with each new lead or break that comes along. Lindsey's disappearance is a wound that will never close, but if we find "our" truth in what happened to Lindsey, there can perhaps be some healing.

    As this Emery brothers case is revealed, we find the thought of it horrific and unimaginable. It seems that as this case unfolds, that it will lead to answers for someone, if not for us regarding Lindsey. It shouldn't take a horrific scenario such as with the Emery brothers to bring the cases of ALL Missing Persons to light. We need to remind people that this sort of thing IS real and it does happen and can touch anyone and so we want to PLEAD to everyone out there to please come forward with any information you have, even if you think it is nothing, . . . It could be the missing piece of the puzzle and an end to someone's nightmare.
    We certainly "HOPE" that we find our answers and our truths about what happened to Our Lindsey, be it with this case or another. We pray for the families of all Missing persons at this time and remain firm in our belief that the most important thing is to never lose Hope. -Jasmine Pierpoint (Lindsey's cousin)

    Woman Charged After Alleged Attacks With Hatchet While High on Mushrooms

    A woman accused of attacking several people in Hoquiam last week while high on mushrooms has been booked into the Grays Harbor County Jail on charges including first-degree assault and first-degree burglary, according to the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office.

    The incident was first reported at 5:40 a.m. Thursday when a woman called Grays Harbor County’s 911 communications center to report she had found missing McCleary girl Lindsey Baum. Baum disappeared at 10 years old from McCleary in 2009.

    Dispatchers traced the call to the Dekay Road area in Hoquiam.

    Deputies from the sheriff’s office and the Hoquiam Police Department responded as dispatchers got another call reporting a woman with a hatchet forced her way into a home and damaged furniture.

    Police arrested Lamb in a second home after she allegedly hit the 82-year-old man in the head and body with the hatchet. His injuries were not life-threatening.

    “It appeared that the man did an exceptional job at trying to fend off the female attacker as she pursued him inside his home,” according to the sheriff’s office. “The man was home alone at the time of the attack.”
